People like to talk. We know that talking to an attentive and thoughtful listener can be helpful in clarifying conscious and unconscious feelings, thoughts, and motivations. But is talk enough? The complex physiology of anxiety and traumatic stress reactions is often stubbornly persistent, despite therapeutic exploration in both conscious and unconscious areas of the mind. In the case of severe trauma, talking can stir up the emotions and associated bodily disturbance without providing any resolution - sometimes leaving clients feeling worse.

The developing field of energy psychology offers an entirely new perspective and gamut of techniques for locating where these traumatic patterns are encoded. They are not in the mind - but in the energy system at the interface of psyche and soma. By addressing these realms concurrently, a powerful therapeutic synergy emerges that allows rapid and deep shifts in the patterns of distress that drive the psychosomatic system.

Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy [PEP] provides a window into the deep sources and structures of emotional currents that flow through the mind. From the energetic vantage point, we can survey the parts, the multiple levels, and the hidden programmes of the psychosomatic system. We have access to realms that are not available through the psyche alone. The author has bridged the diverse fields of "thought field therapy" energy psychology and psychoanalysis to provide a novel overview that is both practical and theoretical.

Reviews and Endorsements

'Phil Mollon is a cautious revolutionary, one of those rare honourable thinkers and renaissance figures who rises above the milieu he was trained in to seek answers to difficult questions. Psychologist, psychoanalyst, practitioner of energy therapies, writer and thinker, he illuminates the impact of trauma on the human mind and body while making bridges between groups and subjects who have previously had little contact with each other. He now emerges with a fully fledged toolkit and movement - Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy (a true PEP talk). PEP [is] inspired by thought field therapy, Emotional Freedom Therapy (EFT), Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT), Seemorg Matrix and psychoanalysis, and integrates energy therapy from libido to Qi.'
- Valerie Sinason, PhD, Psychoanalyst

'Phil Mollon is a trail-blazer who deeply understands the exciting new field of energy psychology, its major modalities and contributions, and its immense potential for removing human suffering even from the most afflicted. In "Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy" he lavishly offers us a clear and penetrating analysis of the field and its potential. It is a must read for clinicians and others interested in psychological transformation and healing.'
- Asha Clinton, MSW, PhD, Developer of Seemorg Matrix Work

'Phil Mollon writes with the elegant charm of a gracious host who has selected only the most delicious foods for you to enjoy. Quantum physics and energy psychology are light and tasty. After you've read his book, you realize that you've learned substantial new ideas, yet feel like you've just come home from a great party with an armful of gifts from your host.'
- Tapas Fleming, Founder of TAT
